Hi guys,

One more question, I had been ghosting them for 5 days, they had sent threat messages to me and my nok to be careful, will send someone to hit me up. I'm not afraid of getting caught by them, Im just worried about my parents safety, will they send people to whack up my parents?

In this 7 months stint, i had paid up 7x the amount of the money I borrowed (5 digit sum) from them, I'm heading overseas soon, just worried on my parents side.

File reports for the harassment, let parents know it is a scam and just ask them to call 999 if ever concerned with any suspicious people around their place.

They will not whack anybody physically, just scare and harass and use fear to make you pay. Do not pay. If harassed in anyway, file more reports and have CCTV to catch them in action and report accordingly.

Don’t worry, those scammer or loanshark runner are all cowards behind phone.
Most of them are malaysian. They will not whack or harm any of you physically. They only scare you thru sms, watapps or video..

Oversea? Now you still dare to go oversea meh? No scare of covid-19 ah?🦠🦠

You paid enough. Like others said, remind your parents to call 999 if anything or anyone suspicious outside house for next few weeks.

Keep reporting to I/O of any harassment you or your parents encounter.

Important that they don't hesitated to call 999 if they are harassed. But do calm them by reminding them SPF is always minutes away to assist them when anything threatening occurs.

Just change all your phone numbers. My brother (the debtor), me (his guarantor) and home phone number all changed. Peace of mind.

I already said many time. Once u r uncontactable. All nightmare will end.

They cannot come back if you follow the steps given here.

If you want to still use that number, we also have explained the how to.

Purely almost impossible for them to find you again. If they do, repeat same steps.

How long ago was the first splash?
After first splash, did you pay?
After that still got more?

Runners could be past desperate victims or also could be people who think they can make a quick buck. In any case, file a report and get then arrested asap. This will deal a blow to the scammers.

My experience was 1 splash and then when no pay, complete silent.

The recent splashing happened at what time ?

Just keep blocking them, ignore them, don't pay them.
These scammers can only call and scare you, trying to break you mentally.
If you give in they become bolder.
Report police, install Cctv.
Let them do what they want, just call 999 if runner turn up, update IO. Trust our SPF.

Keep to the above and trust us here, over time they will give up.

Hi, usually after the PO takes the statement what’s their next step of action?
I had reported to the police twice but I did not ask them what’s their next step of action.

Hi everyone, so one of my girl friend also got scammed from those UML, they also sent her 500 and requested 700 in return to "cancel" her loan.

She has ignored their messages and made a police report. Police told her to either go to the bank, request for the funds to be returned then close her acc (take 3 weeks accordingly to bank) or keep the money and close the account and set up a cctv. What would you guys with similar experience suggest her to do?

She is not planning to give them a single more cent than 500 but will the harassment be more severe if she kept the 500 or will returning the 500 then ghost them be overall "better".

If either way they will be harassing then might as well keep the money like the police said but imo of course if the chance can be kept at minimum then why not

Just keep the money, because if she returned the money, they still will harass her and even ask for more. Just block all uml numbers and ignore or harassment messages.

Yes, it's her own judgement to keep or request bank to return.
Never ever contact the UML to return the money as it might end up to another victim account instead.

From the eyes of law that fund transfer to "return" to UML is seen as you involving in illegal activities.

Many have been prosecuted for doing that. Use the money to buy a CCTV if she feels guilty using it. Get a good one, for $500, a high end one is within budget.

Either way, she have to be prepared for some harassment.

Thanks for the advice I will let her know to not transfer the money to whatever acc they provide and to just follow the advice from the police and ignore all their harassment call etc and update the io for any new information.

Yea she is prepared for some harassment already will inform her boss, family and neighbors in this 2 days. They transferred her the money even after she told them to cancel the "deal." Funny thing is she is smart enough to ask for company name and number to check but also stupid enough to send her personal details before checking hahaha smh
